Perhaps the most embarrassing moment of the Florida Gators’ 26-20 loss to Georgia Southern came at the start of the second quarter when two Gators teammates actually tried to block each other. Via @HollyAnderson It’s tough enough to win when you give up 450 rushing yards (despite not allowing a single passing yard), but when you wind up blocking your own team, that takes things to a whole new level. It had to have been a fun day in the film room. Michael Gartman is a College Football and NFL Senior Writer, the AFC South and NFC West Lead Writer and the Founder, CEO of GridironGrit.com.

PHOTO: USA Today Sports It seemed like any other afternoon in the Swamp as Florida broke out to a 10-0 lead against their FCS opponent, Georgia Southern. But it wouldn't be a normal day for the Gators as they struggled all day to stop the Eagles running game and could not get going offensively. The result was a shocking 26-20 win for Georgia Southern in which the Eagles ran...
Well, it doesn’t get much worse than this.
The Florida Gators (4-7, 3-5 SEC) lost their sixth straight game Saturday, 26-20 to the Georgia Southern Eagles (7-4, 4-4 SoCon), of the FCS. It is without a doubt the most embarrassing loss in school history.
Florida came out with a similar game plan they had from the week before against the South Carolina Gamecocks, running the ball...
GAINESVILLE, Fla. The Gators made history Saturday.
None they will want to remember though.
The cold hard facts from Saturday's 26-20 loss to Georgia Southern read like this:
-- The Gators lost to a Division I-AAFCS team for the first time -- they were 15-0 previously -- since the division formed in 1978; Georgia Southern defeated a Division IFBS program for the first time...
For some reason, I don’t think Florida Gators head coach Will Muschamp feels too secure with his job right about now. For some reason, that vote of confidence the University of Florida’s athletic program gave him early last week has all but vanished and following the 26-20 loss to Georgia Southern at The Swamp on Saturday, things in Gainesville got a whole lot more difficult...
Florida quarterback Tyler Murphy, defensive end Jonathan Bullard and receiver Demarcus Robinson won't play Saturday against Georgia Southern.
Murphy has a sprained throwing shoulder. The injury also sidelined him last week at South Carolina. Skyler Mornhinweg will make his second consecutive start.
Bullard, who has 28 tackles and 1 1/2 sacks this season, aggravated an unspecified...
It’s safe to say that the wheels have completely come off in Gainesville, Florida. The Gators, who will not be bowl eligible this season, have just lost to FCS school Georgia Southern. The Eagles ran the ball 54 times for 429 yards, out-gaining UF by 150 yards. They won despite not completing one pass (0/3) on the afternoon.
On the game’s final play, Gators quarterback Skyler...
Kevin Ellison ran for two touchdowns, Jerick McKinnon had a huge score late and Georgia Southern stunned Florida 26-20 Saturday in what will go down as the worst loss in school history.
No lower-division team had ever beaten the Gators, who won their previous seven games against Football Championship Subdivision teams by an average of 45 points.
So this was a shocker, even though...
Despite the worst loss in school history and the first losing season in more than three decades, Florida coach Will Muschamp doesn't feel like he has a rebuilding project on his hands.
Muschamp, who will return in 2014, said winning the Southeastern Conference's Eastern Division and getting to Atlanta is ''absolutely'' possible next season.
It sounded a...
The Florida secondary has been a great uit this year. You would think giving up zero passing yards would mean big things, but when the other team also racks up 429 rushing yards things can get unsavory as they did. Florida senior defensive back Cody Riggs talks about the issues the guys had Saturday night in the 26-20 loss to Georgia Southern
This is a photo sequence of Florida DB Marcus Maye gouging the eyes of a Georgia Southern player after tackling him.
There comes a time when you are expected to go out and win the game. The Florida Gators are team turmoil right now, but Saturday was that day. Afforded a schedule break with FCS Georgia Southern, Florida was supposed to roll out there and win despite all the issues they have faced this year. That didn’t happen and third string quarterback turned starter Skyler Mornhinweg says there...
